The Italian architect Claudio Nordi received the first award in the international competition for a new Veliko Tarnovo centre. His development was awarded 25,000 euros. It provides 15-story buildings with gardens between floors, a 6,000-square-meter congress centre, underground parking, a modern library and several museums.
An international jury, which was led by Prof. Arch. Georgi Stanishev reviewed 62 works that competed in the contest just for a day and a half. All projects will be made available to the public for feedback.
